26. I remember the case of the NJ teacher who posted anti gay comments on facebook.

One gay DUer who was also a teacher and Gay-Straight Alliance advisor wrote at the time: "The simple fact is that she has a right to her opinions on her own time and on her own dime. Just as I do. Provided that she treats all students equally she shouldn't be fired." That teacher's story generated a fiery exchange between people who held that DUer's opinion and others who believed like another DUer: "Her position as a school teacher is freely chosen. When she chose to be a school teacher, she chose to abide by certain rules of conduct that other people are not subject to. "

So would you defend this Indiana teacher if she publicly posted her hateful beliefs on Facebook, Twitter, newspaper letter, etc.?
